Awake Intranasal Insulin Delivery Modifies Protein Complexes and Alters Memory, Anxiety, and Olfactory Behaviors
The role of insulin pathways in olfaction is of significant interest with the widespread pathology of diabetes mellitus and its associated metabolic and neuronal comorbidities. The insulin receptorExpand

C. elegans germ cells divide and differentiate in a folded tissue.
Knowing how stem cells and their progeny are positioned within their tissues is essential for understanding their regulation. One paradigm for stem cell regulation is the C. elegans germline, whichExpand

Impact of experience-dependent and -independent factors on gene expression in songbird brain
Songbirds provide rich natural models for studying the relationships between brain anatomy, behavior, environmental signals, and gene expression. Under the Songbird Neurogenomics Initiative,Expand

Deletion of voltage‐gated channel affects glomerular refinement and odorant receptor expression in the mouse olfactory system
Olfactory sensory neurons (OSNs) expressing a specific odorant receptor (OR) gene send axonal projections to specific glomeruli, creating a stereotypic olfactory sensory map. Odorant receptorExpand

Human pheromone detection by the vomeronasal organ: unnecessary for mate selection?
Recently, Foltan and Sedy proposed a hypothesis stating that the adult human VNO is integral to the prevention of inappropriate mate selection. In this commentary, we address the authors' assumptionExpand

The TRPC2 channel forms protein-protein interactions with Homer and RTP in the rat vomeronasal organ
BackgroundThe signal transduction cascade operational in the vomeronasal organ (VNO) of the olfactory system detects odorants important for prey localization, mating, and social recognition. WhileExpand

Mature and Precursor Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor Have Individual Roles in the Mouse Olfactory Bulb
Background Sensory deprivation induces dramatic morphological and neurochemical changes in the olfactory bulb (OB) that are largely restricted to glomerular and granule layer interneurons. MitralExpand

Olfactory sensory deprivation increases the number of proBDNF-immunoreactive mitral cells in the olfactory bulb of mice
In the olfactory bulb, apoptotic cell-death induced by sensory deprivation is restricted to interneurons in the glomerular and granule cell layers, and to a lesser extent in the external plexiformExpand

In vivo preparation and identification of mitral cells in the main olfactory bulb of the mouse.
The mouse main olfactory bulb (MOB) is commonly used as a mammalian model to study olfactory processing. The genetic techniques available with the mouse make its MOB a powerful model for analysis ofExpand
